WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Amir Khan is disputing the comments that were recently published in The Daily Telegraph, which quoted the British boxer as stating that he planned to advise stablemate Manny Pacquiao to retire after watching the Filipino superstar struggle in his recent fight with Juan Manuel Marquez. Khan, who wanted to clear the air on the story, told BoxingScene.com - "I don't remember saying that." Both Khan and Pacquiao are trained by Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles, California.
"I don't remember saying that. Manny has a lot more fights left in him. He didn't take much punishment or get hurt in the fight. He took a lot of shots but that's boxing for you. If you're going to go in the shower, you're going to get wet, and in boxing you're going to get hit. Manny has a lot more fights left in him. I'm always there as a fan and I'm a big fan of Manny Pacquiao. That last fight, we expect too much of Manny Pacquiao. It was a good fight. It was a strong fight. And the best man still won the fight," Khan told BoxingScene.com.
